We recorded a fantastic conversation about Fundamentalism and Orthodoxy. We had some audio problems, mainly outside noise from a recording feed. However, the content was great.  We let a few listeners in on the audio, they loved it...so we are releasing this as an unadvertised, non-counted episode.  Enjoy.
